the fiscal cliff or something similar to that. we need to cut taxes. it is important that we do both. i think republicans should be voting on raising taxes a little bit. they will be raising taxes on everybody. because we're coming out of some wars here, we really do not need to be raising our defense at all. that is all i like to see. host: this is richard. he is in garden grove, california. what do you think about the fiscal cliff negotiations? caller: i wish to come to an easy medium. he is going to us to give everyone an incentive. why are they cut it? adjusted 500,000? that is its. -- just a 500,000. that is it. is this is for businesses or for personal assets? people making income or is it just for businesses ta and. everyone is going to have to pay some kind of taxes. you will never explain the cost cutting military. we never understood that. the president has been trying to show the republicans as being the bad guys. both sides are spending in the past. everyone wants to blame. the reserves and the bank's new they're learning about money than they should. it is good for business. now

the spending cuts. what happens if we go off the fiscal cliff for a few days. >> not much is my understanding. it's much more what the market psyche will do and with respect with the tax hikes and cuts, the hit people take is not as much as the rhetoric suggested early on. what weather it's enough to get back to negotiating things, i agree with you that we will go over the deadline. that's the big question of what kind of political ramifications we will have. you will have a chunk more on the payroll. there is a cut because of the sequestration. >> all of us are aware that most people at the top of fortune 500 companies look at these claims saying this is ridiculous. you couldn't run any business the way they try to run the country. is there any immediate impact on the markets next week with their inability to get anything done? >> yes. that's the biggest impact by far. yes, the payroll tax will take effect and that will be one of the most immediate things we see, but it takes two weeks to adjust your paychecks and spend more time repairing and restoring and trying to solve that. the market d

this all along, go off the fiscal cliff. >> i think that he sees a lot of cuts to the military, which the democrats have been after for a long time. and then he gets to do what he loves to do, which is blame republicans. my concern is that i actually see financial problems for our nation at the bottom of the cliff. the president was really interested in the level of the debt we have in this country, the $16 trillion, we would have had a budget pass the senate sometime in the last three years. he proposed a budget, none of the democrats even voted for it. >> juliet: remember, they're having a meeting in a few hours and with all the sniping going back and forth, particularly from janer and harry reid, they'll be in that little room together. it should be interesting. >> eric: brass sew makes a good point and i agree that president obama probably wanted to go over the cliff from the very beginning, but i don't agree where he said at the bottom of the fiscal cliff is something bad for america. it will be tough medicine to take, we've been talking about it, spending cuts to defense, no one

to remember nancy pelosi and the democrats that voted no voted to go over the fiscal cliff. they have been trying to kill all the bush tax cuts. even mr. obama since 2005 when he was running as a senator. i don't know what your thoughts are about that. i would like to hear about the democrats voted to push us off the fiscal cliff. host: how you pick political heroes? caller: this is a republic and want to see going back to what it was. people are getting knocked off of unemployment in states because their rates went down. we go off this cliff, anybody on extended unemployment will not get a check in january. host: this is gary who chooses ben bernanke. beverly is next from vermont. caller: hello/ ? my choice is the teachers of america. i cannot believe that people did not speak up more for the teachers. they do they hurled job practically every day. host: why are they political heroes? caller: who do you think is going to run the country in the future? this is something that people do not understand. our future is our children. nobody seems to care. my choice is the teachers in america. th

to us about the fiscal cliff. caller: i am kind of concerned about it. one party makes a recommendation and never followed through. we don't get very much cutting in these negotiations through the years. in 1990 the democrats said that they would do spending cuts, but they did not. everytime i see a young child, 5, 6, 7 years old or younger, i pat them on the head and tell them i am sorry the countries in this mess, they're going to pay for it, because we have too many greedy people who came up through the 1960's and the only thing they are concerned about is . is we're in for a road through the next few years. host: thank you for your views. from accounting today, this article appeared a couple days ago. and within the paper, there was the schart -- venisa in dallas, tx, a business owner. caller: its vanessa. host: hi. if you saw the spelling on my screen, you would pronounced it that way, too. caller: there is no fiscal cliff. nobody said what the actual fiscal cliff is. to try topoinloy confuse the american people. nobody has ever told us what the fiscal cliff means. it does not mean
